Summer Mini Catalog Blog Hop





Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop. I'm so excited that you have decided to join us on this fun hop! The Hop runs through May 1st, so there is plenty of time to view it all.
There are 22 stops included in this fabulous hop featuring stamps and products from the upcoming Summer Mini. Each stop links to the blog in front of and after so it doesn't matter where you begin you'll make a circle and come back to the one you started at in the end. Please leave comments if you'd like. We all love to hear what you think of our projects. If you have been following the "Hop" in order you have just arrived from Cindy's Blog: Heart's Delight Cards where she showcased the new Beautiful Flower Garden Embossing Folder in a very beautiful way. I chose the stamp set Touch Of Kindness for my stop so let's begin:





I love this new set, such a fun and happy set. I chose to use Sunny Garden DSP with it. I just can't get enough of this DSP right now. So bright and cheery. :) Coordinating colors are Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizazz. Most of these are new In-Colors, but did you know that the In-Colors are going to be kept for two years now! With the introductory of new ones in July. So happy to hear this. Seems like we just get used to them and they are gone. Ok enough chattin'. Back to stampin'.
I chose to use the kitty cat image for my first card and of course she needed a little bling for her collar. I also used the Polka Dot Embossing Folder on the scallop circle to give it a little pop.
For my second card I used the cute little bird bath and bird stamp to make a fun easel card. I used our stamp n write markers for this card. Also added some rhinestones to the water drops. The idea for this card came from a swap I received from Rosemarie Diehl...The Big Shot and Dies where used to make the card elements.
Last I thought the flower and stem stamps would make a perfect little front for a memo pad holder, complete with a pen at the side. Add a little bling and your done. Thanks for stopping by, leave me a comment if you'd like and tell me what you think of my projects. I'll have the directions for the notepad holder for you back here on Monday. So be sure and come back. Now it's time to hop on over to Mickey's Blog: Paper Conversation where she has made some wonderful cards using the stamp set Wonderful Greetings. You are going to love her stuff!
